 VB10 The Agony of Doom 2

This is a remake of the famously unbalanced scenario The Agony of Doom (previously issued as A8 and republished in Beyond Valor 3 as ASL 136).

There are many changes in this new version: new mapboard (24 and 42 instead of 3 and 5), shorter time schedule (7.5 turns instead of 9) and some changes in the Orders of Battle (especially the russian one, which is increased by a powerful reinforcement group.)

So playing this one is a completely new experience if you have already played The Agony of Doom.
